Beautiful Umbertide...

Long lost relative?

This evening I drove up the mountains just to explore the beautiful scenery that surrounds Umbertide.

This is a very interesting ancient ruin. The mountain in the background is Mount Acuto. The top is barren and the side slopes have scrub and grasses that horses, sheep, goats and cows graze on. The ruin on the lower hill dates back to 13th century BC.  Many artifacts have been recovered from this site... amazing.

Looking North West and across another ancient fortification.

Looking East, can you imagine sunrise on this landscape?
When I drove back to the Poggio, the sun was setting on another fine day in Umbria.

AML, NLO good luck on your exams, JRO and SEC AML
